Visited on Sunday, 05/18/08.

Let me add to the chorus of voices praising this establishment. They have an exhaustive, complete collection of beers form pretty much any place that is available in SoCal. This includes what seems to be a full line-up of Nogne and Sprecher, among others. British ales, plentiful Belgians, more California brews than you can shake a stick at: this is definitely one of the best beer shops I have ever seen.

Kudos on the walk-in cooler, the "secret scotch" room in the back, lots of sodas and a well-stocked humidor.

Friendly service, prices not out of the realms of affordability... yeah, this one's da bomb.

If you're looking to pick up some bottles of stuff that's hard to find, this is the place to go. Helpful staff, ridiculous collection, prices are fair (not as cheap as some, but those others don't have the breadth).

I graduated HS and grew up in Escondido, and whenever I come back to visit my family I always make a couple of stops here during my vacation. If you do not feel like stopping by one of the many breweries in the North County, you could always stop by Holiday Wine Cellar to find and pick up some unique beer offerings. For me, this is the best bottle shop in the North County of San Diego. Wen I stopped in last week during my last trip, I was able to buy Lost Abbey Track 8, Older Viscosity, Peche Mortel, Hopparillo, Swami's, and Belching Beaver Old Dirty Barrel. They even had Mogli, which I can never find in Northwest Washington. This place has a great selection of craft beer, plus it also sells wine, liquor, and cigars. The employees were helpful and mostly nice, one guy seemed like he was having a bad day, but he was still helpful. The only change I would recommend is, brighten the place up a little. Well...it is supposed to be a cellar...

What a fantastic store. I came out with almost 2 cases of a variety of delicious brews and the customer service was excellent. I received help and recommendations from two associates. Sadly I had to leave some items behind but it was a gem of a beer/wine/spirits store. Don't forget to check out their walk in cooler behind the beer coolers. They also have a rewards program where you can get some discounts later.
